Photo gallery: Pistorius girlfriend Steenkamp laid to rest

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa (AFP) - Reeva Steenkamp's cloth-draped coffin arrived at a South African chapel for her cremation on Tuesday as the slain model's boyfriend Oscar Pistorius appeared in court charged with her murder.

The coffin with white flowers laid on top was carried into the chapel at the crematorium in Port Elizabeth by six people.

Sombre-faced mourners arrived for the private memorial and cremation at the chapel in a quiet location bordering a park in the coastal city where Steenkamp grew up.
